Last night and this morning I gave brief Skype lectures to Queensland Tech University in Australia on how blogging can inform the design process as part of their ‘Design Boom’ series of talks. They are just starting out as first years on a new design project! If any of you guys have any questions you didn’t manage to ask during the lectures please click the ask button and I will be happy to answer them :)

Take a walk down London’s South Bank, you can alot in a short space of time. As well as the London Eye you can see the Shard, Tate, OXO Tower and National Theatre to name a few.
